President's Message 



Editor's Note: Earlier this year the Rich- 
mond Times-Dispatch invited Dr. Cynthia 
H. Tyson to write an editorial on the role of 
sing/e-se.\' education. Her words are especially 
relevant to readers of this issue of The Maga- 
-Lne, which is dedicated to the talents of 
several MBC women whose achievements , 
self-confidence, and courage have bridged 
generations uith the debia of the Marian 
Stanley Wilkinsoii Acting Award. 



T 



he strength of higher 
education in America is 
rooted in the richness of 
its diversity, the mix of 
options: public and pri- 
vate, two-year and four-year, coeduca- 
tional colleges, and research universities. 
And the single-sex college contributes to 
this diverse mix. Many young people at 
the baccalaureate level simply achieve 
their best in a single-sex setting. For 
them, that's the right option to ensure 
educational achievement, intellectual 
growth, development of self-confidence 
and self-image, and a high rate of success 
after the college years. 

Much has been written to illustrate 
the general value of the single-sex envi- 
ronment. In my setting at Mary Baldwin 
College, the traditional undergraduate 
mission is to support the intellectual 
development and progress of women. 
That mission is succe.ssful because all 
faculty and staff are committed to crea- 
ting a learning and living environment 
designed for women. We are focused. 

TTie climate of the single-sex cla.ss- 
rfx)m matters. At Mary Baldwin, every 
question is asked of (jr by a woman. Every 
answer must come from her. There's no 




escape. Her abilities, competence, and 
diligence are tested every day. There's no 
better preparation for the world of work 
where, quite rightly, she must succeed on 
the same basis. 

Women generally enter college with 
high verbal and interpersonal skills but 
with quantitative skills significantly below 
those of men, usually as a result of differ- 
ent cultural expectations and course 
selection in high school. Quantitative 
skills are crucial to career advancement, 
particularly in our technological age. 

In the structure of the academic pro- 
gram at Mary Baldwin College, courses in 
math and science are designed to give a 
woman expertise in areas she may have 
neglected or been steered away from in 
secondary school. She has renewed access 
1 ( ) future careers in those areas. 

College-age women are more comfort- 
able with and adept at group processes, a 
learning style that emerges from coopera- 
tive efforts rather than from competition. 
At a woman's college, this mode of 
learning is a standard rather than an 
exception. At Mary Baldwin, we note 
that the ability to work well in such 
group processes is a skill more and more 
valued by the corporate world. 



And a woman's college expends all its 
financial and human resources on 
women: not only in the classroom but 
also in first-class athletic programs, 
physical education curricula that em- 
phasize lifelong wellness, and student 
leadership positions that develop deci- 
sion-making skills. 

Most students go to college tor eco- 
nomic reasons. And women have unique 
needs. A course on Women and Econom- 
ics will help but not suffice. Women have 
to balance more roles than men, and they 
are usually in and out of the workplace 
more than men. So women need to 
develop job-search skills and a sense of 
career direction, not simply secure a 
position and rely on smooth progression 
up the ladder. 

Furthermore, women lack the role 
models and traditional knowledge men 
enjoy in the many fields that historically 
were dominated by men. Therefore, they 
need career education and networks of 
alumnae mentors. Job-search skill devel- 
opment, career education and mentorship 
are components of a four-year process at 
Mary Baldwin College. Each woman 
develops a blueprint for her college expe- 
rience — in and out of class — to accom- 
plish objectives. 

Whcii women graduate trom a single- 
sex college focused on them; when they 
have superior interpersonal and verbal 
skills, combined with quantitative exper- 
tise; when they have career development 
abilities and networks to aid them — they 
demonstrate through a resultant life- 
time of success why single-sex options 
are an important part of the diversity of 
higher education.

Generations 

of Talent and 

Struggle 



by Charles Culbertson ADP '86 



Marian Stanley Wilkinson 
Acting A\//ard 




pencer Tracy's advice 
to actors was simple: 
Be on time, know your 
lines, know your mark. 
Admittedly, there's 
somewhat mpre to it 
than that. Talent, role 
interpretation, projection, concentra- 
tion — these elements also contribute to 
success in the theatre. Merely being on 
time, knowing what to say and knowing 
where to stand just aren't enough. 

Yet one other element will be required 
this year of the winner of the first Marian 
Stanley Wilkinson Acting Award, one 
many student performers never have to 
worry about. That element will be the 
ability to play to, and please, an audience 
with great expectations. 

"Marian, you .see, was full of life and 
energy and skill, and was taken from us so 
early," .said Fletcher Collins Jr., Mary Bald- 
win College's profe.ssor emeritus of theatre, 
and co-founder of the touring performing 
arts group. Theater Wagon. "Her contribu- 
tions while a student at the College, and 



later as an actress and director, made 
positive and lasting impressions on every- 
one who knew her." 

And many, many people came to know 
Marian. Following her 1976 graduation 
from MBC, where she had served as Col- 
lins' student secretary, Marian quickly 
forged a reputation as a gifted actress, 
performing in Foxfire, Playboy uf the West- 
ern World, Scapino, Blood Wedding, and 
Plaza Suite at the Oak Grove Theater. 
She also toured Williamsburg in the 
Theater Wagon prodiiction o{ Rebellion. 

In addition to directing The Nerd and 
Chapter Two at Oak Grove, Marian 
actively participated in productions for 
ShenanArts, another prominent area 
theater group. 

"It was in 1991 when Marian discov- 
ered she had cancer, and early 1 992 
wh(;n she realized she was not going to 
win her very brave battle against it," 
said Dr. Collins. "She knew she was 
dying, we knew she was dying, and that 
made it very difficult for those of us who 
knew we would be left behind." 




Elizabeth Brandon '95, MBC's first winner of the Marian Stanlev Will<in.son Acting Award, and Margaret and 
Ftt'tfhcr Collin.s, founders of Theater Wagon. Elizabeth's May term extemship will be ivith Theater Wagon. 



In an effurt to let Marian know 
just how highly she was regarded in 
the community, her co-workers at 
Hunter McGuire School in Verona 
approached Theater Wagon with a 
contribution designed to honor 
Marian and her achievements. Dr. 
Qillins and his wife, Margaret — the 
other vital halt ot the Theater Wagon 
team — took the idea directly to 
Marian herself. 

"We told Marian we had a sum ot 
money donated in her honor, and 
.isked it she would like it if we com- 
bined the money with the works of 
Barbara Allan Hire to establish an 
acting award tor Mary Baldwin stu- 
dents," said Margaret. "Marian, who 
admired and respected Bobbie's 
plays, said yes." 



Norfolk resident Barbara Allan Hite 
'58 is the author of a number of plays, 
including The OlJposite ufSlars, / Did 
Not Cry Out, and the highly succcessful 
Sissy and the Baby jcsiis. Her one-wom- 
an play, Allie Rounds, about the upstate 
New York-born niece of Confederate 
mapmaker Jed Hotchkiss, .seemed to 
Fletcher and Margaret Collins the per- 
fect vehicle with which to showcase 
burgeoning student talent and to pay 
homage to Marian. 

The play is based on the memoirs ot 
Allie Rounds, who came to Virginia in 
1860 to teach at Hotchki.ss' Loch 
Willow Academy near Churchville. 
Although a Northerner, Allie remained 
at the academy after the Civil War 
began, and fell in love with a young 
Confederate calvary officer. Wheii the 



academy closed because most of its 
students had gone to serve as cannon 
fodder in the Southern army, Allie 
was offered a job teaching music by 
Mary Julia Baldwin at Augusta 
Female Seminary in Staunton. 

And so, with the selection ot Allie 
Rounds as the audition piece tor the 
Marian Stanley Wilkinson Acting 
Award, the circle drew nearer to 
completion. The award and the play 
itself spanned the decades to recall 
an exciting and dramatic portion ot 
MBC histor\'. Only one other con- 
nection needled to be made. 

"The winner ot the award will 
perform Allie Round-f as part of an 
externship with Theater Wagon 
during May term, perform at the 
College's homecoming, and in 



the fall must be available to perform 
the play upon request to MBC alum- 
nae groups," said Margaret Collins. 
"This, we feel, coordinates Marian as a 
theater person with MBC alumnae 
who would like to see a play written by 
one of their own and performed by a 
current MBC student." 



However, said Mrs. Collins, this 
audience with great expectations will 
present only one of the many challenges 
facing the 1993 awaid-winner, who will 
receive a $500 stipend from Theater 
Wagon. The winner will have to 
research Allie Rounds and the era in 
which she lived, gain an understanding 



Elizabeth miist interpret the character Allie Rounds and recreate the era 
and Allie's life in performances for alumnae throughout the country. 




of what it must have been like to 
survive in the South during those 
troubled times, and even familiarize 
herself with the language and patterns 
of speech Allie would have used, Mrs. 
Collins said. 

Working under the supervision of 
MBC's Professor of Theater Terry Koo- 
gler Southerington '72, and with Bar- 
bara Allan Hite '58, the student must 
then interpret Allie's character and 
breathe life into it. For 35 to 45 min- 
utes in every performance she will have 
the audience "in her lap," Mrs. Collins 
said, and will have to know her charac- 
ter and the play backwards and forwards 
to keep it interesting. 

"This is a performance, not a read- 
ing," noted Mrs. Collins. "The actress 
doesn't stand at a podium and just read. 
There is a set, and props, and blocking 
is very crucial. Plus, our student will 
have to use vocal quality, expression, 
change-ups, and movement to hold 
audience attention for all that time." 

Mrs. Collins admitted that while the 
Cask will not be an easy one, ultimately 
the student will find it rewarding. Allie 
Rounds, through its use of 19th-century 
language and primary source 
descriptions of times, events and 
people, invites the actress to "wade 
knee-deep" in American history and 
recreate for the audience the high 
points in a woman's life of the period. 

"It's a big responsibility to master all 
of these elements and then play to an 
audience that expects standards," said 
Mrs. Collins. "Yet, like Marian, and 
like Allie Rounds herself, our student 
will be an exceptional person with 
exceptional talents. 

"We think Marian would be pleased 
with the way it's all turned out."

Play 




Barbara AJJan Hitc '58 



March 1864 

Snapping his rifle into position, the Fed- 
eral sentry draws a bead on a /lorst'drau'n 
cania^e racing up the hill past his iratcli- 
tower. 

"Hall!" he commands. 

The carriage continues up the hill. 

"Halt!" he cries again, [ig/iicning his 
jinger on the trigger oj his rifle. 

As he is about to fire, a woman's voice, 
/inn and unafraid, shouts from the car- 
riage, "We will halt when uv anive at the 
top, and not before!" 

The carriage clatters to a stop at the crest 
of the hill and the sentry, abashed, follows 
like "a well-trained pup." 

It is this indomitiiblc spirit tli.it 
helped New Yorker Allie Rounds 
survive in Staunton and the 
Slienaiuloah Valley during: the 
American Civil War, and encounters 
such as this one are hifjhli^hted in the 
Rarhara Allen Hite play hearing AUie's 
n.ime. It is not surprising that Allie 
KoiouIn, which depicts an intelligent, 



vital woman, should he chosen as the 
centerpiece work for the Marian 
Stanley Wilkinson Actinfj Award. 

"Marian was almost a mirror image of 
Allie in that she didn't let adversity 
stand in her way," said Hite, who gradu- 
ated from Mary Baldwin in 1958. 
"Even when she knew she was dying ot 
cancer, Marian was upheat and retu.sed 
to give in to selt-pity. 

"It was this 'never say defeat' attitude 
of hoth women that, 1 think, lends 
special meaning to the play." 

Hitc said she first read Allie's mem- 
oirs in 1988 at the urging of Fletcher 
Collins, hut did not consider them 
appropriate material for dramatic adap- 
tation. She said while the memoirs 
were interesting in their portraiture of 
certain aspects of life in Staunton dur- 
ing the War Between the States, they 
"ohviously had heen written for her 
grandchildren" and avoided controver- 
sy. Potentially captivating topics such 



as slavery. Federal occupation of the 
southern states, the gradual coUap.se of 
the Confederate government and the 
eventual defeat of its armies were never 
touched upon. 

"And then there was Allie's love tor a 
Confederate calvary officer — and she 
heing a Northerner!" said Hite. "There 
was so much potential, but nearly all 
hints iif conflict were left out of the 
memoirs." 

Which is not to say they are dull, 
Hite noted. Allie was a keen observer of 
people, provided in-depth de.scriptions 
ot what they looked like, what they wore 
,uid how they participated in some of 
the social events ot the day. And there 
was the incident with the Yankee guard. 
However, there just didn't seem to be 
enough material from which to weave 
an engaging theatrical performance — or 
so she thought. 

Hite said she put Allie Rounds out of 
her mind tor the next three years. In 



1991 she traveled to Staunton looking 
for a wTiting project, again came across 
the memoirs through Fletcher Collins, 
and this time saw them as a challenge. 
Hite realized she had to give the mem- 
oirs dramatic structure, a "beginning, 
middle and end that would hold the 
audience's attention for 35 minutes." 

Allie's relationship with Colonel 
Francis F. Sterrett pro\ided 
that structure. 

The play opens in the spring of 1865 
with Allie answering a knock at the 
door of a Tioga County, New York, 
home. She reenters the stage bearing a 
letter from her Aunt Sarah Hotchkiss in 
Staunton. TTie audience quickly learns 
that Allie has returned to New York 
from Staunton after being rebuffed by 
her fiance, Rebel cavalry' leader, Frank 
Sterrett, and has asked Sarah Hotchkiss 
for news of him. The news has arrived, 
but neither Allie nor the audience dis- 
covers what it is until the end of the

play. Along the way she provides color- 
ful reminiscences of people, times, and 
places that have long since disappeared 
from the American scene. 

Hite said one of the greatest pleasures 
of writing Allie Rounds was creating 
dialogue based on 19th-century lan- 
guage patterns and Allie's own peculiar- 
ities of speech. 

"I think my main talent as a play- 
wright is having an ear tor dialogue," 
said Hite. "After reading Allie's jour- 
nals and memoirs, it got to the point 
where it became so natural for me that 
I couldn't tell my style from Allie's." 

Hite, who currently is working on 
two other plays, said she is gratified to 
see Allie Rounds develop into a vehicle 
honoring Marian Stanley Wilkinson. 
She said she hopes the courage and zest 
for life shown by both Allie and Marian 
stand as examples to future generations 
of Mary Baldwin College students. 



The one-tvoman play is based on the journal of a young Netf York woman 
who taught for Mary Julia Baldwin during the war and fell in love 
ivith a Confederate cavalry leader. 




Aarian Stanley Wilkinson 



In the small, quiet hours of May 13, 
I'^QZ, Marian Stanley Wilkinson's year- 
long battle with cancer came to an end. 
At the age of 38, she left behind a fami- 
ly, hundreds of friends, and a message. 

"No person could have felt more 
loved, valued, and appreciated in life 
and in my journey with this illness than 
I have been by all of you," she wrote to 
triends and family in a letter to be read 
at her memorial service. "The numer- 
ous, loving gifts 1 have received . . . 
have filled my days with great beauty. 1 
got to see the most beautiful part of 
each of you, and for that I feel 
grateful, indeed." 

The feeling was mutual. 

Margaret Stanley Wood 74 ot Staun- 
ton remembers how her sister's viva- 
cious, outgoing nature, devotion to the 
theater and unswerving dedication to 
the children she taught endeared her to 
scores of people in the community. 
Even when she entered those dark hours 
ot knowing she was not going to live, 
Marian insisted on maintaining a cheer- 
ful and positive relationship with her 
friends and co-workers. 

"There was the public Marian and the 
private Marian," said Mrs. Wood. 
"When she found out she wasn't going 
to make it, she privately went through 
all the \'arious stages of grief. 

"Publicly, she never let anyone see 
I hat side of her. Even though she suf- 
fered, she was always sensitive to the 
feelings of others. She made it easy on 
the people around her." 



In her memorial letter, Marian 
hinted — but only hinted — at the 
dichotomy between the public and 
private self. The overall theme was one 
of hope. 

"Although 1 have expericnccxl pain 
and suffering, I have been fortunate that 
my faith in God has grown and become 
stronger. 1 must admit 1 have had some 
arguments with God about all this, but 
we kept talking anyway. I was not afraid 
to die becau.se I trusted in God's great 
love. I have always known that the 
transition from this form to the next 
would be a beautiful one tor me." 

Mrs. Wood said part of Marian's drive 
to "get things in order" included impart- 
ing this message of courage and hope, 
not only to friends, but to the children 
she taught at Hunter McGuire School 
in Verona. 

"Marian went back to Hunter 
McGuire, visited each cla.ss, and told 
her kindergarten students what was 
giiing on," said Mrs. Wood. "She was 
very matter-of-fact about it, as were 
many ot the children. 

"They would ask, 'Arc you going to 
die?' She would say, 'Yes, 1 am,' but 
would then explain her belief that she 
was going to a better lite." 

in her memorial letter, Marian told 
her students: "it was such an honor to 
be your teacher ... 1 also want you to 
know that even though this is a sad day, 
I want you to celebrate (my) lite . . . 
Finding the celebration in every single 
day and appreciating it simply because 





\ 



Marian Stanlev VViJkiitsoti '76 



it's here is, to me, the most important 
truth anyone can ever learn." 

Fletcher Collins Jr., Marian's drama 
professor at MBC, mentor and close 
friend, said while Marian was concerned 
about friends and family grie\ing for 
her, a healthy sense of theater very 
nearly made the May 1 5 memorial ser- 
vice even more heart-wrenching than it 
was. Dr. Collins said when Marian sug- 
gested that she videotape a reading of 
the letter, everyone in\ol\ed quickly 
said no. 

"We told her very plainly that 
none ot us would be able to stand 
it," said Dr. Collins. 

Nevertheless, there were few dry eyes 
in Staunton's Trinity Episcopal Church 
when her memorial letter was ready by 
Paul Hildebrand, artistic director tor the 
linral theater group ShenaivArts. Always 
sensitive to her audience, it was as it 
Marian knew what would happen. 

"Go forth on this day and do and feel 
whate\er you need to," she said in the 
final line ot her letter, "but leave a place 
open in my honor to celebrate life!"

1 993 MBC Swim Team Builds on 
Enthusiasm of 14 Freshmen 



by Michelle Hite Marti'ii 



The Man- Baldwin College Swim Team 
has grown trom an eight-memher team in 
1992 to a squad of 18 members this season. 
Director of Athletics and swim team coach 
Mary Ann Kasselmann attributes the 
growth to recruiting efforts in 1992 and an 
enthusiastic freshman class. "All our teams 
have grown in numbers thanks to extra 
dollars that were appropriated for 
recruiting last year," she said. 

With only one senior, two juniors, and 
one sophomore on the swim team, this 
season may prove to be a building 
experience for coach Kasselmann. 

"We have 14 freshman on our team this 
season, and I think that says a lot about 
the type of freshman class we have this 
year," said Kasselmann. "They arc more 
involved in all activities, and as freshmen 
their enthusiasm is at a high. 

"These girls are extremely dedi- 
cated," she added. "We practice every 



weekday morning at 6:30 a.m. They 
wouldn't he on the team unless they 
really enjoyed swimming." 

Kasselmann, who has been involved in 
coaching athletics since 1977, enjoys 
coaching swimming more than most sports. 
"Swim teams are the most enjoyable to 
work with because there are more chances 
tor flexible and individual coaching 
experiences. Each swimmer can reach 
some level of success. I meet with each of 
our swimmers at the beginning of our 
season, and we set a personal goal for her," 
Kasselmann said. "The goals are very 
different because we have 18 swimmers 
with varied degrees of skill. Yet, each girl 
can reach some level of personal success, 
whether for the team or her personal best 
against the clock." 

Mary Baldwin's swim team competes 
and practices in the Staunton Racquet 
Club swimming laciliries. MBC uses the 



the pool and indoor tennis facilities, and 
the Staunton Racquet Club uses the MBC 
racquet ball courts for league and 
tournament play. 

"It's a very good arrangement for us," 
said Kasselmann. "It would be difficult tor 
our team to utilize the pool in King Gym 
since we have 18 swimmers. No more than 
eight swimmers can practice in King Pool 
comfortably. And, since the Staunton 
Racquet Club is so close to campus, we 
can provide our team transportation to 
and from meets and practices." 

Mary Baldwin College joined the 
Chesapeake Women's Alliance in 1992. 
Many swim teams from the Alliance and 
the east coast travel to Florida over 
Christmas break to train because of 
excellent weather conditions and 
exceptional swimming facilities.

MBC Students Emphasize Service to 
Red Cross , Honoring Commencement 

Speaker Elizabeth Dole by Kathy Mauermann -94 



American Red Cross President Eliza- 
beth Dole, who will deliver the College's 
May 30 commencement address, has 
inspired Mary Baldwin students to 
expand community ser\'ice projects with 
an emphasis on volunteering for the 
local Red Cross. 

"Rather than being paid a set fee for 
her graduation speech, Mrs. Dole 
requested that Mary Baldwin put that

trunks to Augusta County Red Cross Director Lynn 
Murphy with help from SQA Secretary Sahrina Rakes. 



money toward Red Cross work," said 
Student Senate President Meg Kluttz, 
who led a recent project to assemble 
di-saster trunks for the Augusta County 
Red Cross. 

This kind of selflessness is very com- 
mon for Mrs. Dole, who did not accept a 
salary the first year she was president of 
the Red Cross, and believes that volun- 
teers are the "heart and soul" of the 
organization. She insisted on serving as a 
volunteer herself. 



Students' original plans to emphasize 
projects for the Red Cross were focused 
on the Hurricane Andrew disaster last 
September. The Student Senate learned 
that money was the greatest remaining 
need in the Florida recovery, and the 
students did not have financial resources, 
according to Ms. Kluttz. Mrs. Dole sug- 
gested that Mary Baldwin women help 
the Red Cross on a local level. 

As a result, in 
February the Sen- 
ate delivered disas- 
ter tfunks contain- 
ing up to 50 items 
in each trunk from 
toys to toothpaste 
to towels, all neces- 
sities for victims of 
fires, floods, hurri- 
canes or tornadoes. 
The entire Mary 
Baldwin communi- 
ty was involved in 
the project. All 
residence halls and 
houses responded 
to the appeal, and 
Spencer 3, a fresh- 
man hall, donated 

more than was 

requested "just 
because they 
wanted to do more," according to 
Ms. Kluttz, who was pleased with the 
students' involvement. 

Another effort organized to benefit 
the Red Cross was led by A.ssociate Pro- 
fessor of Physical Education Betty Keg- 
ley's first aid class and Physical Educa- 
tion Instructor Sharon Spaulding's 
health cla.ss. The students .sponsored a 
blood drive in the Student Activities 
Center in March, donated blood and 
assisted with the tlrivc. Red Cross volun- 



teer Cindy Staton '95, a resident of the MBC 
Mary Scott Community Involvement House, 
where student life responsibilities require a 
focus on service in the Staunton community, 
helped prepare mailings for a recent Red 
Cross tiind-raising campaign. Senior class 
president Bekah Conn reported that all MBC 
juniors and seniors are being encouraged to 
volunteer community service hours for the 
American Red Cross. 




American Red Cross President 
Elizabeth Dole will give MBC's 
Ma"v 30 commencement address. 



A native of Salishury, NC, Mrs. Dole 
graduated from Duke University, Har- 
vard Law School, and holds a master's in 
education and government from Har- 
vard. She .served as the first female US 
Secretary of Transportation and as Sec- 
retary of Labor in the Bush Administra- 
tion. As head of the American Red 
(Jross, Mrs. Dole oversees 23,000 staff 
members and more than one million 
volunteers. She has served six United 
States Presidents.

Is Everybody Happy? 



A Report from Mary Baldwin College Abroad by Virginia Roy^ter Francisco '64 




Paul and Liivla Dolly Hammock '63 were among 18 travelers on the recent 
MBC travel-study program, "Passages to the People's Republic of China." 



Each of the Mary Baldwin College 
travel-study excursions I've escorted has 
developed a tour slogan. In 1992, it was 
"Is Everybody Happy?" — a frequently 
asked question by the wily Arab trader 
who served as our guide in Jordan. For 
our 1991 visit to China, the motto was 
"Hello, Tablecloth!" Linda Dolly Ham- 
mack '63 coined that one from the 
street sellers who congregated outside 
every attraction and at every stop of our 
tour bus. These entrepreneurs knew 
three words of English — "hello," the 
name of the article they wanted us to 
buy, and the asking price. 

Travelers' ages ranged from my 
daughter Sarah (12 in China, 13 in the 
Middle Ea.st) to the seventies. They 
signed on in pairs, groups, or singles, 
knowing that since we don't advertise to 
the general public, all our travelers 
would have a connection with the Col- 
lege. They included alumnae like Linda 
Hammack, Nina Sproul Wise '41 , Kate 

12 



Spady Scott Jacob '50, Alice Parson 
Paine '46, Marquilla Stuckey Stringer 
'47, Caroline Schooley '69, and Ellen 
Eskridge Groseclose '48; adult students 
like Mark Rough '94, also the son of 
visiting theatrical director Bill Rough 
of Charlottesville; friends of the Col- 
lege in the Staunton-Augusta commu- 
nity and beyond; and members of the 
faculty and staff — and spouses, mature 
children, and friends of all of the above. 
Parents were a special joy: Margaret 
Dent, mother of Sue Dent Souder '83, 
and Beryl Gutnick, mother of Beth 
Young, adjunct instructor of art and 
interior design. Every single traveler 
was someone we were glad to know — 
compatible, considerate folks who 
became comrades before nightfall. 

Modern China was a revelation to 
the 18 hardy travelers who followed 
Don Wells and me (a.k.a. "fearless lead- 
er") to Beijing, Xian, Shanghai, Guilin, 
and I long Kong. The (Jhina of legend is 



gone, leaving its shell: beautiful build- 
ings and a few artifacts, the remnants 
of a vanished world. In its place, we 
found teeming modern cities, ever 
more crowded, with a standard of liv- 
ing rising from subsistence level. 

In China, we found lots of poverty, 
hut little obvious hunger. The people 
we observed on city streets seemed to 
be healthy and were often attractively 
dressed. But there and in the Middle 
East, irrigation water is pumped, farm 
produce is carried to market, and 
goods are delivered within cities by 
human power, people carrying huge 
loads in baskets, towing or pushing 
carts, or driving bicycle carts. 
Child labor is common. 

Striking contrasts and juxtapositions 
marked our journeys. In Cairo, a single 
street may feature Bedouins riding cam- 
els, farmers with donkey carts, bicyclists, 
taxis, camouflage-painted local busses 
stuffed to the doors, Mercedes Benz 
tourist busses, motorcycles and scooters, 
and pedestrians. In Guilin, China, our 
favorite block encompassed a barber- 
shop (chair on the sidewalk), a dealer in 
small hardware, a restaurant (stoves, 
tables and chairs on the sidewalk), and a 
wandering pig, who visited all equally. 
Streets in old Cairo were similar me- 
langes, while Amman and Jerusalem 
were more modern, cleaner, sans pig — 
less varied and exotic! 

Our guide in Shanghai was compara- 
tively prosperous. She and her husband 
and their small .son lived in one room 
smaller than the bedroom my husband 
and I share, and considered themselves 
fortunate to have an apartment of their 
own. They owned a bicycle each, and a 
television, and .she dressed in neat white 
shirts and patterned skirts. Their subsi- 
dized apartment cost only about 10 
|-)ercent of their income, but they spent 
25 percent for clothing and at least 50 
percent for food, which is incredibly 
expensive in China. 



We were amazed again and again ;it 
limits on personal freedom, especially 
In China. Government television cam- 
eras watch public places. The govern- 
ment tells tourists where to sleep and 
eat, and assigns the educational paths, 
jobs, housing, and even family size 
ot all citizens. 

In the Middle East, limitations were 
the result of ethnic tensions and vio- 
lence again and again. Israeli school 
children on field trips and all Israelis 
traveling in groups — within their own 
country — are accompanied by armed 
guards. East of the Jordan River and in 
the Golan Heights, whole villages are 
empty, the residents moved away to 
create a buffer zone between Israel and 
her neighbors. Nothing moves on the 
l\\id Sea, which borders both Jordan 
and Israel, although there is a busy tour- 
ist and commercial traffic on the Sea ot 
Gallilee, surrounded by Israel and only a 
few miles to the North. 

Water was another theme of both oLir 
journeys. Ancient cities were sited 
where water is to be found, by rivers or 
springs or seas, sources of life and com- 
merce, to say nothing of pleasant sites 
for dwellings. Where the average annu- 
al rainfall is a few inches, compared to 
about 35 inches in Staunton, every drop 
is preserved. In ancient Petra, a city 
about the size of Staunton carved into a 
rose-red rock canyon, every rock surface 
was incised with a water channel lead- 
ing to larger channels and eventually to 
a cistern. Along the Nile and its canals, 
the desert begins where the water stops, a 
sharp line drawn in the soil or sand as 
implacable as a border barricade. 

Our guides everywhere have been not 
only superbly knowledgeable and inter- 
esting people, but also cheerfully willing 
to answer endless questions about every- 
thing from the Egyptian pantheon to 
the number of women in the Knesset. 
The Arab trader spetit several hours 
scr.imbliiig about the rocky remains of 
Petra with us, making sure we saw every 
beautiful carving, every colorful variant 
of the marble-like limestone from which 
the city of 30,000 had been carved. Our 
C 'hinese national guide, Jane, cheerfully 
altered the itinerary when we rebelled 
ai^ainst seeing any more temples, and 
led us through the old market area of 




Village school girls in Jordan luivigate rocky strttctures near ancient cities 
in the Middle East. A Holv LmiuI travel-study /jrogrum is scheduled for 1994. 



Shanghai instead. Waleed, our Chris- 
tian Arab Israeli guide, volunteered his 
afternoon off to lead a shopping excur- 
sion, and kept us close under his ample 
wings when ethnic tensions flared in 
Jerusalem's Old City. 

Yes, thanks, everybody's happy. The 
comrades of our journeys have become 
cherished friends. We hear with keener 
ears news of China's struggles to join 
the modem world without losing con- 
trol of her people, of Hong Kong's pre- 
carious position between two worlds, 
of the Middle East's ongoing conflicts. 
We wouldn't trade anything for memory 
pictures of the Nile; flock after flock of 
geese rising from the Sea of Galilee in 
the dawn mist; the roof lines of Chinese 
cities, with their differing and distinc- 
tive tile patterns; the sights and smells 
ot the Bedouin market at Beersheba; 
the tomb paintings in the Valley of the 
Kings, well preserved after four thou- 
sand years; the intricate paintings on 
every surface in the Forbidden City; the 
Great Pyramid of Cheops majestic 
against a cloudless sky; the Great Wall 
of China snaking away as far as we could 
see; or the fortress of Masada — higher 
than a helicopter! — where the Zealots 
made their stand. 



More important, our journeys 
changed our life journeys. Christmas 
was different for us this year, infinitely 
mtire vivid for having seen the shep- 
herd's fields and the manger bed. Eas- 
ter will bring back for us the Garden of 
Gethsemane, the Holy Sepulchre. Our 
bones know the immense scale of the 
pyramids, the rough cobbles of old 
Jerusalem, the steep climbs of the Great 
Wall, the muddy streets of old Cairo, 
the carefully swept pavements ot Xian 
and Beijing and Shanghai. And we 
know more surely how richly bles.sed we 
are, in freedoms, opportunities, and 
material goods. 

We would like to share our jour- 
neys with you, so drop me a line 
at the College, or give me a call 
at 703-887-7031. Next up: Show- 
time in London and Stratford-upon- 
Avon, May 15-28, 1993. 

Plan to accompany us in 1994 when 
we repeat our odyssey to the Middle 
East, from February 20 to March 6. 
MBC's programs are not offered to the 
general public. Every trip is designed 
to provide quality tor the College's 
extended family and experiences that 
put our travelers in touch with the real 
spirit ot the country.

Campus and Alumnae Notes 



Alumnae President's Letter 



Springtime is here and Homecoming 
and Commencement '93 are just 
around the comer. I hope each of you 
has marked your calendar and will join 
me in Staunton, May 27-30. I can 
promise you it will be a spectacular 
weekend. Our college staff has planned 
very interesting activities and 
special events that you will want to 
share with classmates and other 
Mary Baldwin alums. 

TTie Alumnae Association will 
present the first "Alumnae College," on 
Thursday and Friday of Homecoming 
weekend. You will be able to chose 
either the enrichment track or the 
career track. Sessions will be taught by 
our extraordinarily competent Mary 
Baldwin professors. So, you will 
return home mentally invigorated 
and challenged. 

Today many of us seem to prefer to 
unwind over long weekends. The 
Alumnae Association is offering five 
domestic trips during 1993-94 to areas 
as diverse and fascinating as Santa Fe, 
NM, Charleston, SC, and New York 
City. Please join us and bring a friend 
on any one, or all, of the.se mini- 
vacations. Each trip will be enjoyable 
and educational. 

Alumnae events in Staunton and 
around the country have increa,scd in 
both number and attendance. This is 
because you, the alumnae, care. I thank 
you for your hard work and your 
enthusiasm. It can't be beat. 

In closing, I urge you to support your 
Alumnae Association. Purchase a Parks 




Duffey lithograph, the notecards or 
postcards; buy an item from the 
Sampler; include Pat Menk's book, To 
Live in Time, in your library; come 
gallivanting with us; attend Alumnae 
College and Homecoming and 
rediscover Mary Baldwin. 1 want to 
meet and stay close to all of you. 

Very fondly, 

Emily D. Ryan '63 

President,

Inaugurations 



President Cynthia H. Tyson is often invited to participate in the inaugural ceremonies for the new presidents of other 
colleges and universities. If she were to accept all the invitations, she would he ahle to do little else. So, she often asks that a 
trustee, alumna, or friend of Mary Baldwin College represent her and the College at inauguratioris across the country. The 
representative dons academic gown, cap, and hood and takes part in the academic procession. (Rememher how the faculty and 
administration marched at your graduation.') Not only is the experience enjoyable for the alumna, but Mary Baldwin benefits 
as well from the public recognition of our standing in the academic community. Many, many thanks go to those listed below, 
who have represented Mary Baldwin at college and university inaugurations throughout the country.

A Reading List 



Bastard Out of Carolina 
hy Dorothy Allison (New York: Dutton) 
"When 1 finished Bastard Out of Carolina I 
wanted to blow a hugle to alert the reading 
public that a wonderful work of fiction by a 
major new- talent has arrived on the scene. It is 
one of those once-in-a-blue-moon occasions 
when the jacket copy seems inadequate and all 
the blurbs are examples of rhetorical under- 
statement. Please reserve a seat of honor at the 
high table of art of fiction for Dorothy 
Allison" — George Garrett, New York Times 
Book Review. 

Possession: A Romance 

by A.S. Byatt (Random House) 
"A plentitude of Dickensonian surprises awaits the 
reader at the end of this novel about competing 
academics who come into comically mortal 
combat when one of them discovers that two 
Victorian poets, a man and a woman, whom they 
all guatd jealously as their idols and the sources of 
their incomes, had more than a passing interest in 
each other. A.S. Byatt is a gifted observer of 
details and she uses them brilliantly in this very 
Victorian "romance" of a detective story that 
satirizes academia but also becomes a concoction 
in the manner of Jorge Luis Borges" — Best Books of 
1990. 

Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in 
America by David Hackett Fisher (Oxford 
University Press) 

"This cultural history explains the European 
settlement of the United States as voluntary 
migrations from four English cultural centers. 
Families of zealous, literate Puritan yeomen and 
artisans from urbanized East Anglia . . . royalist 
cavaliers headed by Sir William Berkeley and 
young, male indentured ser\'ants from the south 
and west of England . . . egalitarian Quakers of 
modest social standing from the North and 
Midlands . . . and, poor borderland families of 
English, Scots, and Irish. . . . These four cultures, 
reflected in regional patterns of language, 
architecture, literacy, dress, sport, social structure, 
religious beliefs, and familial ways, persisted in the 
American settlements. The final chapter shows 
the significance of these regional cultures for 
American history up to the present" — David 
Szatmary, Library Joumai. 

Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage 
by Madeleine L'Engle (Farrar) 
"Madeleine L'Engle's book . . . was written as a 
celebration of her ftjrty-plus years of marriage with 
Hugh Franklin and of the people and events that 
helped shape those years. . . . Hugh Franklin 
proposed to Madeleine L'Engle with these words 
from a poem by Conrad Aiken: 'Music I heard 
with you wa.s more than music. And bread I broke 
with you was more than bread.' No wonder 
L'Engle wrote about her marriage. The memories 
she shares are more than memories; they reveal 
the stuff of which true love is made" — Margie 
Reitsma, Ubruryjinimal. 



When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear 
Purple edited by Sandra Mart: (Papier-Mache 
Press) 

"First issued in 1987, this anthology of short 
stories, poems, and photographs has been reissued 
in an attractive formaf: large clear type, lots of 
white space, diversity in the contributions. . . . All 
of the stories and poems are accessible in the best 
sense of the word, and the photographs of 
individually aging women are powerful, and 
uncompromisingly beautiful in their austerity. 
There is no airbrushing here, no cosmetic layering 
like premature mortuary work; these faces are age 
itself, looking life full in the face" 
— Eve Merriam, Ms. 




Waiting to Exhale 

hy Terry McMillan (New York: Viking) 
'This book about female buddies is full of good 
times as well as bad. . . .Terry McMillan's heroines 
are so well drawn that by the end of the novel, the 
reader is completely at home with the four of 
them. They observe nien — and contemporary 
America — with bawdy humor, occasional 
melancholy and great affection. But the novel is 
about more than four lives; the bonds among the 
women are so alive and so appealing they almost 
seem a character in their own right. Reading 
Waiting to Exhale is like being in the company of a 
great friend. It is thought-provoking, thoroughly 
entertaining and very, very comforting" — Susan 
Issacs, New York Times Book Review. 

The Last Tsar: The Life and Death of Nicholas 
II by Edward Radzinsky, translated from the 
Russian by Marian Schwartz (Doubleday) 
"During the Soviet years, details of the execution 
ot the czar and his family in Ekaterinburg in 1918 
were kept secret for several reasons besides Stalin's 
habitual paranoia. One was that some of those 
involved were later written out of revolutionary 
history by Stalin; another was fear that knowledge 
of the facts would create sympathy for the victims 
and possibly a monarchist cult. The author, a 
Russian playwright and historian, spent decades 
exploring Soviet files, and in the glasnost years, 
when he was free to publish his findings, he 
received more material — written documents and 
oral testimony. He has adroitly blended his 
heterogeneous sources into superb detective 
story" — New Yorker. 

Colony by Ann Rivers Siddons (HarperCollins) 
"In Colony, Anne Rivers Siddons has written an 
absorbing multigcnerational novel — and set the 
story largely outside her customary Southern 
locales. We are hooked from the moment we meet 
Maud Gascoigne as a 17-year-old tomboy running 
wild in the South Carolina countryside. ... It Is a 
pleasure to watch Maude change from a scared, 
homesick young bride to a confident matriarch. 
Ms. Siddons portrays children paying for the 
mistakes of their parents, and sees patterns of 
behavior being passed from one generation to the 
iHxt. Most of all, she explores the complex, often 
unpredictable, nature of love. To her credit, these 
I hemes never interfere with the enjoyment of a 
well-told story" — ^Joan Mooney, New York Times 
Book Review. 

The list was compiled by the t Continuing 
Education Committee of the Alumnae Board In

year, with the exception of the Emily Smith Medallion, for which there is no such restriction. 

Emily Smith Medallion 

Mar>' Baldwin alumnae have performed outstanding ser\'ice in many areas of American life. Some have received public acclaim; others who have 
ser\'ed just as fully ha\-e not been recognized. The Board of Trustees, believing that all such alumnae should be recognized in a tangible way, established

The Emily Smith Medallion each year honors an alumna who has made outstanding contributions to her community, church, the College, and 
the Commonwealth.

for Maiy Baldwin, her community', and family. 

This award honors those alumnae who have demonstrated outstanding service and excellence in leadership on behalf of Mary Baldwin College. 

Career Achievement Award

was established in 1 986 by the Alumnae Association to honor alumnae who have brought distinction to themselves and Mary Baldwin College through 
their careers or professions. 

Service to Church Award 

This award, established in 1986 by the Alumnae Association, recognizes the close and important relationship that has existed between Mary 
Baldwin College and the Presbyterian Church since the College's founding. The Service to Church Award honors those alumnae who have provided

Rediscover Mary Baldwin: 
Alumnae College 1 993 



Man' Baldwin's greatest asset is the 
collective knowledge of its people: 
the faculr\^ who teach, motivate, and 
inspire; the administrators who support 
them and the College; and the alumnae 
with a wealth of talent and expertise. 
This spring the Alumnae Association 
is inaugurating a new program, the 
Alumnae College, which is designed 
to give alumnae access to this great 
wealth of knowledge. 

Participants will have the opportunity 
to enhance their professional develop- 
ment through the career track, or to 
learn something new, purely for plea- 
sure, through the enrichment track. 

The Alumnae College will be held on 
Friday, May 28, with registration and 
orientation the previous evening. It is 
scheduled to coincide with Homecom- 
ing/Commencement weekend, so that 
alumnae returning for class reunions 
and other Homecoming events can 
come a day early to take advantage of 



the new program. Laura Catching Alex- 
ander '71, executive director of Alum- 
nae Activities, says that all alumnae are 
encouraged to attend, whether or not 
they plan to stay over for Homecoming 
and Commencement. 

Career development track 

"Creating Your Own Success: Career 
and Personal Development for Women 
Leaders" was designed by Cathy Ferris 
'78 of Richmond. Managing stress, com- 
municating effectively, projecting the 
image of a competent leader, network- 
ing, and writing a good resume are all 
important components of creating 
success in a career. So this series of 
three workshops, designed especially 
for women, will address a range of topics 
designed to enable women to develop 
goals, to foresee and overcome road- 
blocks to success, and to create and 
work through an action plan. A dynam- 
ic and able workshop leader, Ms. Ferris 
has been teaching a variety of manage-

ment and business courses through the 
Richmond office ot the Adult Degree 
Program since 1990. She also holds a 
full-time job as marketing director for 
the Chesterfield Town Center. After 
receiving her MBA from West Virginia 
University, she started her career in 
retailing, moved to market research, and 
ended up meshing her areas of expertise 
in her current field — marketing shopping 
malls. In 1992, she joined Mary Baldwin's 
Alumnae Association Board of Directors. 

The enrichment track 

will offer a field trip and a wide variety 
of interesting seminars devoted to topics 
ranging from history to field biology, 
from spiritual development to traditional 
music. The purpose of this track is to 
allow alumnae and friends of Mary Bald- 
win to indulge in the joy of learning. Five 
fascinating topics will be addressed in 
seminars and workshops led by some of 
Mary Baldwin's best teachers. 

Dr. Mary Hill Cole's class on "Marital 
Ups and Downs of the British Monar- 
chy" will take a look at a long line of 
royal divorces, bitter family divisions, 
and generational enmities between 
parents and children, from the 1 1th 
century until the present. This will put 
the current shenanigans of the British 
royal family into historical perspective. 

Walking through the woods on a spring 
morning with Dr. Eric Jones, associate 
professor of biology, is a delightful and 
educational experience. Even those who 
have spent much time in the out-of- 
doors, hiking and enjoying the natural 
world, will learn much about the plants 
and the ecology of the Virginia moun- 
tains in his class, "Spring Wildflowers." 

Dr. James 1 larrington, a.ssociate profes- 
sor of adult studies and former director 
of the adult degree program, is well

Dr. James Harrington, associate professor of adult .studies, ii'ill /)eifonii an 
exciting sample of Irish traditional music ti'ith ba,sic Celtic in-strMmentx. 



known in Staunton tor his musical 
talent. In "A Jig in Time: An Historical 
Sampler of Celtic Traditional Music," 
Dr. Harrington will provide an intro- 
duction to the basic instruments used 
in Irish traditional music (harp, Uillian 
pipes, whistle, fiddle, hodhran) and 
to the main forms ot Irish music (jig, 
reel, hornpipe, march, waltz, air). 
"Irish traditional music should he 
appreciated as a powerful and evoca- 
tive language which, like any language, 
embodies much of what is lasting and 
important in Irish culture," Dr. Har- 
rington comments. 

Dr. Edward A. Scott, associate profes.sor 
ot philo.sophy, will discuss a different 
side ot a different sort of music. In "Jaz: 
and the Poetics of Desire," he examines 
the way in which joy provides therapy 
tor wounded desire. "A certain kind ot 
joy emerges out of a tragic awareness ot 
the human condition," he says. "The 
spirit is embodied in and integrated into 
the song, and recuperation occurs 
through the performance." He plans to 
play N'ideotapes of jaz: performers as part 
ot the presentation. "Gesture is a part ot 
the music, too. What Billie Holliday 
does with her body is as important as 
what and how she sings." 



The Reverend Patricia Huiit, chaplain 
of the college, is known to many 
members of the College community as 
the gifted and inspiring preacher who 
officiates at Alumnae Chapel. She will 
conduct a seminar that she calls "The 
Challenge of Crisis and Change." In it, 
participants will discuss whether we can 
do more than simply survive changes 
such as divorce, remarriage, job change. 



illness, problems with children, and 
facing our own death or the death of 
people close to us. "Life changes and 
crises are a personal challenge and have 
the potential to be painful and even 
destructive," she says. "How can we live 
so that we emerge from crises stronger, 
wiser people?" 

This Alumnae College seminar is an 
' opportunity to take a look at where you 
liive been and what you have learned, 
.ind to get your bearings for the future. 
Director of Alumnae Projects Barbro 
Hansson ADP '88 is working with the 
.Alumnae Board's Continuing Education 
t'ommittec, headed by Susan Massie 
Johnson '67 of Edinburg, VA, to put 
together the Alumnae College program. 
She commented, "This is the sort of 
program we have wanted to do for a 
long time, and alumnae have often 
mentioned that they want an opportu- 
nity to learn. And the faculty support 
has been tremendous. So this is a very 
exciting project to work on."
